3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Overpriced great name wonderful for beginners - pretty bottle and tasty but this will go from being your favorite to your least- hakutsuru is almost half the cost , get it cold and its far superior. Still much love for this bottle it opened my eyes.

Pours clear from a bottle, served slightly chilled. Aroma of light fruit being cut. Flavor of a pear that’s not quite ripe yet, slightly sweet and crisp but also a little dry. Good sake.

2.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Honey nose, with subtle koji and airplane glue notes. Crystal clear, yellowish hue. Little initial flavor, but caramel and mild koji and melon appears later. Watery, warm. Inoffensive and super clean, but not a lot of complexity

300 ml bottle. Pours clear. Taste of rice, fruit and some citrus. Nice aroma of pear, citrus and rice. Has a nice body. Overall, pretty good. The pear and citrus add something to it, but still remains a good sake.

Bottle shared by bhensonb. Looks like water, smells like watermelon. The rice is prominent in the flavor with a bit of fruitiness and a very bitter finish.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Bine & Vine.Pours like clear water. For me the aroma suggests greenish melon. Rather "medium" body. Flavor is clean with melon notes. Mostly for me there’s not a lot of flavor, unless it’s "rice". The heat hardly burns. This is very smooth.
